"It is not because we have been free,
but because we have a right to be free,
that we ought to demand freedom.
Justice and liberty have neither
birth nor race, youth nor age."
by:
Sir James MacKintosh
(1765-1832) Scottish historian and statesman

    We are only as free as we allow each other to be. For what is there to limit our freedom but other people? You want freedom? Stop persecuting others for exercising it when it does nothing to violate another. Self-righteous busy-bodies are plentiful on the left and the right.
